Detti, men's fencers join gold rush

Victories in team foil event, 800m freestyle swimming

(ANSA) - Rome, July 27 - Federica Pellegrini's remarkable victory in the 200 metres freestyle at the swimming world championship in Budapest was just part of an Italian gold rush on Wednesday. Gabriele Detti won gold in the 800 metres freestyle later in the day while fellow Italian Gregorio Paltrinieri took bronze.
    At the fencing world championship in Leipzig, the men's quartet of Daniele Garozzo, Giorgio Avola, Alessio Foconi and Andrea Cassarà beat the United States 45-41 in the final of the men's foil team event. That victory took the Azzurri to the top of the fencing world championships medal table with nine medals, including four golds, after the victories in the women's foil and women's sabre team events and Paolo Pizzo's triumph in the individual épée.
